Okay Doc Bodine,

I wish you had made those early life, adult, and old age separations a bit clearer. Were they arbitrary delineations? Like 0-25,26 to 50, and fifty and over? Ballpark numbers would have helped a bit. Second, what did you mean by strong resistance training? I know each individual is hard to pin down, but again some ballpark numbers would have helped. I am going to be 66, and even a 20 lb dumbell is difficult for me after fifteen reps. I also do push ups and burpees, but not every day!

So do body weight exercises count as resistance training? One of my main goals, is to not get injured. At gyms (and I hate gyms) most of the trainers are young folks, and have no clue what a sixty five year old body feels like. I don't want to compete , I just want to stay active. Thanks again, I loved your answers at the end of the talk , by the way. Smiles, Kevin
